In 1980, eighteen concerned business leaders sought to address the challenges facing Broward County. They sponsored a working retreat in Vero Beach where diverse representatives were invited from the business, government, labor and civic sectors to come together to openly discuss the issues at hand and offer viable, long-lasting, positive solutions.
Through hours of discussion and debates over the course of the retreat, fresh ideas and solutions emerged to create new opportunities to build a stronger and more secure future for Broward County. Out of that meeting, The Broward Workshop was formed.
Decades later, the nomination-only membership has grown to include 100 of the areas key decision makers, business people and community leaders. Our members generously give of their time to address critical issues and build a brighter, more secure and sustainable future for Broward County.
In addition to The Broward Workshop, our members are highly involved in the community through many other organizations. They help coordinate the county's response to meet the challenges of this century and beyond.
